Heatbeat: It's What's For Dinner
Heatbeat - Chow Mein (Original Mix) [Captivating Sounds]

Armin van Buuren feat Ana Criado - Suddenly Summer (Heatbeat Remix) [Armind]

Argentinian duo Heatbeat have three (yes, three) songs in the Beatport Trance Top 5 right now, so it’s pretty safe to say they are owning the airwaves of trance right now. They’ve got a new 2-track EP out, Chow Mein/Extra Bacon, and a new remix of Armin and Ana Criado’s hit, Suddenly Summer, both releases likely signifying a significant next step in the pair’s career and sound.

Chow Mein and Extra Bacon both have similar sound qualities to earlier Heatbeat works–their remix of Junkie comes to mind specifically–but Extra Bacon leans slightly more toward the big room, electro side of things (specifically the final complextro drop) while Chow Mein stays markedly trancier with spliced vocals and arena-shredding lead synth lines. The Suddenly Summer remix released two days before the start of summer, an appropriate date for this remix that easily improves on the original with its complex synth rhythms and raw electro energy.
